The city of Cedar Rapids' former veterans memorial director has been arrested on a charge of felonious misconduct in office.
An attorney for 54-year-old Gary Craig says his client has been falsely charged.
Craig was arrested earlier this week, about 18 months after the city's Veterans Memorial Commission put him on leave. The commission also asked the State Auditor's Office to look into Craig's handling of money.
He resigned from the position in March 2008 citing job stress.
A state audit report released in January accuses Craig of improperly spending money and accepting improper pay.
Craig was arrested Wednesday and posted a $5,000 bond and was released. He is scheduled to appear in court on April 3.
